I can’t stand fluorescent lights. I literally can’t sit in a room with them on for very long without noticing them. For years, people walk by wherever I’m working and ask me if I like working in the dark (I’ve got a long list of catty responses – all various derivatives of “being in the dark.”)
Yesterday, I was a judge at the DaVinci Institute’s A Night with the Visionaries. I thought it was going to be a strange way to spend a Friday evening, but I ended up having a great time and being completely blown away by the inventions and inventors that were competing. The evening was extremely well done and Thomas Frey who runs the DaVinci Institute should be proud on the event his organization put on.
While I saw plenty of cool things including an infra-red pistol mounted camera, a self-tuning guitar, a personal cooling device, and an ambient light dome for photographers, my favorite was the Sky-Scape decorative fluorescent light diffuser. It’s a brilliant idea that is one of those inventions that the instant you see it, you get it, and fall in love with it.
Happiness for fluorescent light haters in now only $37.95 per light away.
